There's a red button shaped like the hard-top just to the left of the gear lever. With the ignition on (and the engin running, for preference) push the knob forward to raise the roof and close it.

The windows should wind down first before anything else moves.

Putting the roof down is just as simple, just pull the knob backwards and wait until everything stops moving.

Check the centre console storage for the pack containing handbooks etc.Took me 3 weeks to realise it had a compartment as the button is only visible from passenger side and it's the 1st side opening centre compartment I've seen.Everything bar the service history booklet(already had it)was hiding in there :)
